The Sea Ice Prediction Network–Phase 2 (SIPN2) convened a sea ice community open meeting on Tuesday, 10 December from 12:30-1:30 p.m. during the 2019 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meetings in San Francisco, California.

This meeting was organized to promote knowledge exchange and collaboration among members of sea ice research community. A brief overview of the 2019 Arctic sea ice/Sea Ice Outlook season and a brief summary of stakeholder needs were provided at the start of the meeting.

Meeting participants were invited to share a one-minute update about their projects/efforts related to sea ice prediction and/or observations. A PowerPoint template was available, for those who want to share information in a slide format, upon request from Betsy Turner-Bogren, ARCUS (betsy [at] arcus.org).

These fast-paced updates included:

  • The name of the project or effort,
  • A brief summary of the project/effort (in lay-person language),
  • A key highlight,
  • Any opportunities presenter sought/offered for collaboration with other community members, and
  • Contact information for sharing additional information.

Thirteen community members shared related efforts via slide presentations.
(Presenters were asked to indicated if they do not want their slides posted.)

A boxed lunch was provided free of charge to meeting participants.
